A local (Spokane, WA) Audi repair guru has a bunch of IA stuff on his 1987
Avant q.  He and Ned figured the power to be around 285.  Maybe 300 on a
cold day.  Actually did very little to get it there.  IA chip.  3" exhaust.
K24  That's about it.  He did P&P it though.  Another friend of mine has a
similar set up in a 1986 5ktq and power is about the same.  However, as of
last night, he now has a Dialynx EM.  No P&P on his motor.  There was a guy
back in the midwest on the main list Eric something or another that had a
5ktq from which he claimed to get around 360hp.  Who knows though.  That is
only what I have heard.
